I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
The First Baptist Chancel Choir, for high school aged youth to adults, and leads worship from September through late May at the 11 AM service, striving to offer its best to God in the work of worship through leadership in our musical offerings. The Summer Choir, our choral ensemble during the summer months (June – August), is a terrific time for anyone to try singing in our choirs. Both choirs are an incredibly energetic, friendly group of people and joining the either choir is a great way to create connections in our church family.
The Chancel Choir rehearses regularly on Wednesday evenings from 7:15 until 8:45 PM, and again on Sunday mornings from 10:15 until 10:45 AM. The Choir’s repertoire, usually sung in the original language, ranges from Renaissance polyphony to modern choral works, including jazz and gospel. The Summer Choir rehearses the anthem schedule on Wednesday evenings during the month of May and reconvenes each Sunday morning at 10:15 AM in preparation for worship. Participation in the Chancel Choir offers unique opportunities for musical, intellectual and spiritual growth, an occasion for service and offering to God, not to mention the chance for fun and fellowship.
New members are always welcome to the choirs of First Baptist. The requirements for membership are enthusiasm, energy, and effort; no audition is required. We work together to develop a collective sense of community — musically and spiritually — that enables us to share God’s love through music with one another and with our congregation. Anyone interested in knowing more about or joining the choir should feel free to contact our Interim Worship Leader Logan Williams.
